Editorial Reviews

Stockard Channing is Miriam, an "ugly duckling" who is dumped on by everyone. After her heart is broken by a callous campus jock, Miriam tearfully speeds off in her car and is involved in a serious accident. Plastic surgery is required, and when Miriam emerges from behind the bandages, she is ravishingly beautiful. It's payback time when she uses her new attractiveness to exact revenge on all those who wronged her. Edward Asner plays the police inspector who's hot on the trail of the femme fatale. A dark comedy written by Joan Rivers, THE GIRL MOST LIKELY TO... will leave you in stitches!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Classic From The 70's August 19, 2005
Format:DVD
This movie has been a long time coming!

In a nutshell... after a traumatic experience, an ugly duckling is transformed into a ravishing beauty.

By putting theory (from the numerous college courses she has taken) into practice, Miriam Knight exacts revenge on all those who were cruel and unkind.

Stockard Channing's breakthrough role.

It will be great to view this dark comedy on DVD. A welcome addition to my collection. There's a spot waiting for it between Kill Bill and Carrie, in other words, the REVENGE section.

THE GIRL MOST LIKELY TO..., is a gleeful revenge comedy and can best be described as "Carrie" with some wigs and sky-diving thrown in. Miriam Knight (Stockard Channing) has just enrolled at yet another college. The reason why she moves is simple: Miriam is ugly. And teased. And tormented. And sick of it.

When she is badly-scarred in a car accident, plastic surgeons transform this ugly duckling into a beautiful swan. Miriam emerges, vowing to exact her sweet revenge on those who made her life a living hell.

Be prepared for a wild and hilarious ride with Stockard Channing in this over-looked gem, which has garnered a sizable cult following. With Ed Asner, Ruth McDevitt, Annette O'Toole, Suzanne Zenor, Warren Berlinger, Jim Backus and Carl Ballantine. Based on a story by Joan Rivers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Truly Wonderful Film!!!!!!! October 10, 2005
Format:DVD
I have been waiting for decades for this to come out on commercial video. I am thrilled to have the film. This is Stockard Channing at her very best (and she is always superb).

This is a classic tale of revenge. All of us who may have been ugly ducklings will definitely sympathize. And we will yearn to be as successful as Ms. Channing has been!

Bravo!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all time fave films!! October 3, 2005
Format:DVD
I saw this awesome made-for-tv movie when it was originally broadcast in 1972 (I was 7 years old), and it's lived on since on old videocasettes. I watch it over and over and it made me fall in love with Stockard Channing.

Each of the characters lampoons a "type" so perfectly (the jock, the popular girl, the nerd, etc.) and many are played by faces that became well-known on 70s TV (Fred Grandy from Love Boat, Larry Wilcox from CHiPs). This film is SOOOOO entertaining and it's full of classic lines that will build your camp movie lexicon (watch for ones like "We don't want someone the fans can shout 'here comes fat-fat-the-water-rat' at....")

Four thumbs up!

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY!!!!! IT's HERE!! October 4, 2005
Format:DVD
*sigh* I have been waiting for this to be on VHS or DVD for literally YEARS. Forget VHS, but when I first wanted it...VHS and Beta were the only available viewing options! This movie is hilarious!!! For all you people who have been scorned and pushed aside because of your looks...this movie is for you! For all others, it's just great fun! I saw it when I was a little girl and always remembered it, checking occasionally in my adult life for its release. It's been a long time coming, but the wait was worth it! I can't recommend this movie enough! It's so fun! I can't wait until my DVD arrives!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good GIRL! December 28, 2005
By yaremar
Format:DVD
I had no idea that this made-for-TV film was scheduled for release on DVD (it never made it to video), so when I saw it on the shelf at Best Buy, I was thunderstruck. Forget WAR OF THE WORLDS or THE MAKING OF PETER JACKSON'S KING KONG--as far as I'm concerned, this is the big holiday release for 2005.

I first saw THE GIRL MOST LIKELY TO... back in 1973 when it aired as part of ABC-TV's "Movie of the Week" series. Most entries in this series were highly forgettable outings, but there were notable exceptions, among them: THE NIGHT STALKER; THE NIGHT STRANGLER; DR. COOK'S GARDEN; A COLD NIGHT'S DEATH; RUN, SIMON, RUN; TRIBES; MAYBE I'LL COME HOME IN THE SPRING; and this wicked black comedy that introduced me to the wonderful Stockard Channing, who is still one of the best comedic actresses in the business. (She's also terrific in dramatic roles.) Stockard plays Miriam Knight, an "ugly duckling" college student whom nearly everyone humiliates and deceives. After an auto accident, Miriam undergoes plastic surgery, which transforms her into a shapely beauty. Since her tormentors no longer recognize her, Miriam adopts a variety of phony identities to exact her revenge on each and every one of them.

Written by Joan Rivers, THE GIRL MOST LIKELY TO... is a sharp, biting satire, and one of the best comedies of its era. (In fact, it puts most modern comedies to shame, too.) Zipping along at a brisk 74 minutes (it was made to fill a 90-minute time slot), there are no wasted moments. Miss Channing is a marvel to watch as the underdog-turned-cobra, deftly balancing comedy and pathos, and she's ably supported by a strong cast of comic players (Edward Asner, Warren Berlinger, Suzanne Zenor, Jim Backus, Joe Flynn, Fred Grandy, Chuck McCann).

5.0 out of 5 stars Live by the sward, die by the sward May 5, 2007
Format:DVD
Miriam Knight (Stockard Channing) is beautiful "on the inside." She just has a problem of looking rather not so beautiful on the out side. Life and many of her acquaintances have played cruel jokes on her.

She recovers from a bad auto accident and her out-nards are now readjusted to match her innards. However it is too late and she remembers those whom took advantage of her earlier situation.

Many people of different walks of life are meeting their demise in mysterious ways. It is up to Det. Ralph Varone (a very young Edward Asner) to make sense of this and possibly fall in love with the brilliant mind that can create the perfect crime.

Will Herman Anderson (Warren Berlinger) die a plumber's death?
Will Miriam find a man to love her for what is on the inside?
Will Ralph solve the mystery?
Can we stop laughing?

All star cast, circa 1973. Written by Joan Rivers and is funny in some parts. Look for a young Annette O'Toole, Fred Grandy, and the debut of Stockard Channing, an ugly duckling... Read more

The 70s was a real "Made for TV" movie golden era. It took previous decades efforts to the next level, but not quite to the big screen category. Read more

The ABC Movie of the Week
You're right, there were many memorable films made for t.v. back then. They should be revived for old times sake and the new generation.
